'Irish want censorship' Archbishop

ARCHFIISHOP McQUAID of Dublin this week stated that the majority of Irish people "accept and want" censorship because they accepted the natural and Christian moral law.

"I would advise the critics, lay and clerical, in particular clerical. to study again that section of theology and canon law that deals with periculum commune (common danger)."

Dr. McQuaid, who was speaking on Wednesday at the annual meeting of the National Film Institute, said: "You are a grave contrast with the fractional element of our society that chooses to exercise itself in acrid hostility towards censorship."
